|About the Book|
Eric Doyle was a man of vision. It was a vision of Christ seen through the eyes of St. Francis of Assisi, which vision brought a unity and a dignity to all creation, as well as a fraternal connection with Christ, the first brother of all. This same vision led Eric to his fascination with Teilhard de Chardin on the one hand and his interest for mother earth and ecology on the other. In 1974, Erics dream to return to Canterbury, the place where the Franciscan story in England began in 1224, was fulfilled., Eric alerted us to the wealth of the spiritual life, prayer, devotion, philosophy and theology that saturate our Franciscan heritage. He sought answers for contemporary in ecology, liberation theology, ecumenism and the place of women within the Church.
